Here I would like to mention iMovie which is the video editing software application. Some people like to use it to edit DVD movies. But, the work of importing DVD to iMovie may bother them a lot before editing because of the incompatibility between DVD movies and iMovie. It is not going to be the problem as long as you use the suitable DVD ripper to adapt the DVD format for iMovie.
iMovie is an entry-level friendly piece of software with humanized operation and interface. We can use it for editing video rotation, font effects controlling background music volume and so on. There is no doubt that it is the best choice for beginners to edit videos. But it also has limitations. One of them is that iMovie only supports several specific formats like H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MOV, DV, HDV, AVCHD and QuickTime. And it does not support AVI, MKV, WMV, FLV, WebM, DivX, XviD, DVD, VOB, DAV, M2TS, MOD, TOD and MXF.
Because the normal format of DVD movies is VOB, consequently, iMovie can’t accept DVD Movies.
